Now read how is operates and what social odium it brings. For full visualization of the sanctity of temple, read below before going to the theme direct.

Suchindram means the purifier of Indra', but it connotes a place imbued with the divine power of converting papa into punya, sin into merit, base into pure, depraved into divine being etc. In common parlance, it signifies now a small town with a big temple situated on the bank of Palayar in the Kanyakumari Date of Tamilnadu, but once an integral part of the princely State of Travancore Cochin.  It has a splendid past and carved out for itself an enviable niche in the temple history of India, due to its association and habitation by many divine celebrities, like Brahma, Vishnu, Maheswar, Indra and spiritual personages like Atri, Goutama, along with their illustrious life-partners. Its legendary name was Jnanaranyam, reputed for its hermitages reverberating with Vedagosha. It is this sacred land that was famous for the ordeal known as Suchindram pratyayam, whose very name was tolling death-knell to the culprits, frauds, swindlers, pilfers, crooks, dacoits and a wide variety of their incarnations in multiplicity of colourful denominations thriving only by thieving. It is here in this Sodhana Kshetra that Indra regained his original pleasant form. It is this Mokshapun that delivered the verdict of prayaschitta for Saraswathi, Lakshmi, Parvathi on expressing paschattapa. It is here the' Trimurthis assumed the form of Mahalinga called Dharmasamvardhini, according to scriptures with Brahma in the middle, Vishnu at the bottom and Siva at the top after blessing the immortal couple Anasuya and Atri with three children Chandra, Durvasa and Dattatreya, and are being worshipped as Sthanumalayapperumal. And it is to. this deity Devendra is doing Ardhajamapuja everday even today. It is here Adi Sankara was given the Pranavamantropadesa by Siva himself. It is the abhishek waters of this chief deity that sink in the temple itself and emerge at Kanyakumari. On account of such meritorious plus points, this mahakshetra, a repository of art treasure and a haven of heavenly celebrities is claimed by all- Saivates, Vaishnavates and Brahmopasakas as their own and hence drawing thousands of devotees throughout the year, since the Satyayuga. Visit for the darsan of the most worshipful divinities of all sects.
